Between 5-7 days. Here's how it breaks downs. You must be on the islands for 3 days (including weekends and public holidays) before applying for a licence.

On the third day you apply for the license on the third day, normally ready in 2 business days unless either party is divorced. In the case of a divorce, the documents have an additional stop, the Ministry of Legal Affairs.


1) Valid passports and birth certificates.

2) For those under 21, parental consent is required through an affidavit from a lawyer or notary public.

3) A sworn affidavit or letter from a clergyman or lawyer stating neither party has ever been married.

4) In the case of a divorce, the divorced party must provide a Decree Absolute.

5) If widowed, the deceased's Death Certificate

6) All documents must be in English. Those in another language must be translated and certified.

7) No blood or medical tests are required.


Although the requirements are streamlined, the number of offices you must visit is needlessly cumbersome.

And you must first obtain stamps for your documents. The logical thing would be to have these stamps available at the government offices you visit.

But no, you must obtain them from a post office, any post office, open M-F from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. The following government offices are open the same hours.

Pay your EC$10 license fee at the Treasury,
Financial Complex, The Carenage, St. George's;
(473) 440 5571

Obtain the marriage license application from the Prime Minister's Office, 6th Floor, Ministerial Complex
Botanical Gardens, St. George's; (473) 443 4688. Also provide this office with EC$15 stamp.

Pay EC$2 registration search fee to the Registry General's Office, Ground Floor, Ministerial Complex
Botanical Gardens, St. George's; (473) 440 2649.

You pick up the license from the Registry and also provide them with a EC$5 stamp.

Now, go have a rum punch with fresh nutmeg.
